Coconut wax is made through a cold-pressed process from the meat of the coconut. This type of wax has many benefits. One of the many is it holds a higher fragrance volume than other natural waxes. However, coconut wax is very soft (similar to coconut oil at room temp). In our candle making process we combine both coconut and soy wax– hence our name Coconut and Soy to allow for more fragrance oil than just a soy candle, but to give the candles body or firmness.
